The formation of these elite fighting units hints at a worrying truth. The war on terror in Pakistan has new, urban front-lines, evidenced by the 2014 massacre of children at the Army Public School, Peshawar and the 2016 attack on Bhacha Khan University and cruelly exposing the urban myth that violence could be contained within rural society.

Expanding the military’s capability, by forming elite units, is one way the armed forces are preparing to combat the cycle of terror we face. Following the elite unit during training, Sabiha has a rare glimpse of them in action as they reiterate Pakistan’s commitment to rid itself of terrorism and make the country safe for the next generation.

But the unsettling question is: Is a military solution an adequate answer to this problem?
